I have five dc. We are ttc #6 (although one is foster and not sure if he is staying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> )
I have 5. I'm not sure there will be more on purpose, but I'm very open to accidents.<br><br>
I am having issues right now trying to give #4 enough attention with a brand new baby (#5) around. She is being left by the wayside more than I'm comfortable with, which is what is making me put the brakes on more, for now.<br><br>
I always say you KNOW you have a big family when you start referring to your children by their numerical order. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I also say you know you have a big familiy when you and DH start referring to the children as "this one" and "that one." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
and PS, my kids are watching waaaaaaay more TV than I'm comfortable with, just so I can have some peace to nurse and cuddle the new baby. I cannot believe how much TV those kids are watching, but I'm not going to worry about it till the baby is no longer a newborn. I'm going to give it a couple more months. I do feel horrible about that, too.
